Taylor Elementary's fourth-grade classes were recently visited by the Utah County Stormwater Coalition. Students were educated by Ms. Jenny Devlin on the importance of stormwater and how not to pollute it. Students were also taught the steps of the water cycle and how it impacts each other's daily lives. Fourth-grade student, Thatcher Sumens, says, "It is important not to litter or put paint and garbage in the gutters because we need to use the water that goes in there." This is always a great time of year for students to be visited by the Utah County Stormwater Coalition!
